Welcome to the USS Tornado!

Mission Status

Ambush at RaQ'Al System

Suvlu'taHvIS yapbe' HoS neH ~ Klingon Honor Guard
(Brute strength is not the most important asset in a fight.)

USS Tornado is one of few Rhode Island classes in service of Starfleet and assigned towards Task Force 93 in Bravo Fleet. Its primary mission is divided into tasks of science, diplomacy, and exploration of the unknown. But in the tracks of the evolving story, the crew of the Tornado gets unwillingly forced into investigations of temporal incidents or anomalies.

With Providence Fleet Yards as its home base, Tornado operates on diplomatic matters at the Klingon border or investigate new and unknown scientific discoveries. The year is 2388 and there is an unwilling adventure awaiting the crew of the USS Tornado. Join us and help to uncover or discover the unknown!


We are proud supporters of Deadpool,SWA and LGBT community, to bring back that little joy into your life!

Good day,

It is my sad duty to inform you all that after some discussion and talks in the Command Team. That I have made the choice to close down the USS Tornado. The simple reason is that I will be focusing on another sim group, narrow down my activity across the RPG world due recovery and university and is the storm in me for Tornado calmed down.

Almost 3 years has the Tornado formed amazing stories and spread them over the Beta Quadrant. I thank each and everyone ever involved with the Tornado for their contribution towards this wonderful sim.

The website stays active for another month before it closes down to wrap up the current ongoing stories. After that, the website will be taken down and stored in the archive. The website domain will be released and you are all free to continue your adventures elsewhere.

Again my sincere thanks for everything! I wish you all the best and the greatest stories yet to come!

Friendly regards

So if you wish to give your opinion about improving a story of the TF? Or want to propose that awesome idea you have? Then this is your chance!

» Simming Prize nomination season!

Posted on Sat Dec 17th, 2016 @ 6:48pm by Ryoko Takato in Out of Character

A message from Ongoing Worlds, the RPG branch that represents the RPG world in their weekly blogs of changes, newcomers and tips! Lets participate in this as well!!

The message:
Tis’ the end of the year! Which means it’s impossible to take a step around here without stumbling across someone trying to hand out an award.

And guess what? I'm pleased to announce the Simming Prizes are now accepting nominations, which you can submit by going here. The deadline for nominations is January 7.

So what are the Simming Prizes? Well those of us at the Prizes like to think of them as the Nobel Prizes of the simming and play-by-post online role-playing community. (We have a healthy ego!) By this, we mean the Prizes are intended to honor people & organizations that have made significant contributions to our collective gaming community. We are not in the business of evaluating and finding the best sim of the year (we leave that task to our able friends at the Tournament of Simulations).
